Who We Are
Building bright futures by lifting children out of poverty
Children of Vietnam lifts children out of poverty by eliminating barriers to fulfilling their potential through wraparound services that focus on one child, one family, one community at a time.
As an organization, our vision is clear: a Vietnam in which all children flourish, reach their full potential, and contribute positively to society.

How We Started
Children of Vietnam (COV) began in 1998 with two friends, one from Vietnam and the other from America, who simply saw the needs of many children and decided to take action.
Ben Wilson and Luong Thi Huong rode a scooter through the streets of Danang and into the countryside, bringing aid to children and their families — food, shelter, medicine, and clothing — anything and everything a child might need. Brightening each child’s future remains our focus today.
